Fear not what you know, fear what you know not. Sol Palha

We thought that the best way to illustrate how the masses operate would be to put up something that would be entertaining and educating at the same time. Our answer to this was to create a Comic Strip Illustrating The Mass Mindset, in action.  If you want a more detailed analysis of this phenomenon, then take a look at this article  A clear illustration of the mass mindset in action.

In the first part (look at the cartoon below), the naysayers are screaming death to the markets and the second are the enlightened ones celebrating and salivating as the market tumbles.  In a nutshell, these compasses the most fundamental principle of Mass Psychology.  One must wait for the emotions to hit a boiling point and in that sense, it differs a lot from the so-called fashion contrarian style of investing. Fashion contrarians embrace a new trend because it looks great or sounds cool or they want to appear to be contrarians without even knowing the actual meaning of the word.  Fashion contrarians are nothing but lemmings with heavy camouflage gear.

Contrarians can make money but they tend to abandon the ship as soon as the masses get on board and that is a terrible mistake. Mass Psychology clearly states that one should only abandon the ship when the masses are foaming with joy.
